This class was tough.
This course was one of the most beneficial courses I took. Although challenging at times since Pelfrey assigned multiple assignments a week, it gave me the most hands on experience yet. Pelrey's assignments were all practical as they encompassed real tasks that will have to be completed in the real world, such as writing memos, press releases, SEO blog posts etc. She really cared about us and our futures and took the time to help us all out individually.
The final project, which is cumulative throughout the semester, is creating a complete communications plan similar to ones that agency's create for clients. Although very meticulous, this project was really fun since it challenged us to think critically and apply all elements of public relations we have learned. I also really enjoyed the tidbits of advice Pelfrey gave us and the guest speakers she brought in.

Advice for students:
Depending on your professor you could have a different experience but if you're looking to actually get a lot out of the course I recommend Pelfrey. There will be times you are challenged, but it only gave us more experience and taught us valuable skills.
